Normal People

Back to back episodes on Normal People can never be a bad thing and this week Connell (Paul Mescal) and Marianne (Daisy Edgar-Jones) start mixing the chemistry by socialising as friends in Dublin.

Marianne introduces him to her group, and predictably one of them, Teresa (Lauryn Canny), decides she like to get her mitts on him.

Though she’s still dating Gareth (Sebastian De Souza), Marianne’s interest in the relationship has faded and perhaps prompted by Teresa’s moves, she makes a drunken pass at Connell.

Like most relationships though life turns out not to be a bed of roses and things take a negative turn when Marianne goes home and argues with her brother Alan (Frank Blake) and Connell loses the part-time restaurant job that funds his life in Dublin.

Normal People – Monday at 9.00pm on BBC One.
